The awkward scenario where one person goes to kiss another on the cheek and the recipient moves for the mouth (or vice versa). This results in a repeated back and forth movement where both parties keep moving to rectify their facial position, creating a kung fu movie visual.

There was much pride at stake when Angry Dave, the cook, called a Mexican Standoff. You should have seen him sweat when an order came in.

1) A standoff. As used today "Mexican" is pointless & the phrase makes no sense. Do you ever wonder why it isn’t called a Canadian or Bulgarian standoff? Also note nearly all the other definitions in this lexicon that start with “Mexican” are unflattering to the culture.

2) Early to mid 20th century S Texas term for a rout. Colorful language used by the profoundly racist (white) Texans of that era. The joke being that in a fight, the Mexican always runs away and later explains that his lack of injury was because "We just stood & stared at each other for a while and then went home."

1)Too silly to use in a sentence.

2)In a scene from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," the killer rabbit quickly turns the skirmish into a Mexican standoff as the terrified knights obey King Arthur's order to "Run Awaaay!"

When you and your roommate both masturbate while pretending to be asleep, each keeping one eye open to make sure the other one doesn't 'wake up'.
This unintentionally awkward situation will probably occur several times during the average college semester.
Roommate 1: "Yo man I jerked off so hard last night, thank god you didn't wake up."
Roommate 2: "Haha me too..."
Roommate 1: "Oops, that was totally a mexican standoff..."
